Thursday Writing Quotes ~ Alfred Hitchcock

There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it. – Alfred Hitchcock


  1. He was right!

    There's that lovely moment in the cafeteria in North By Northwest when Eve "shoots" Roger. The moment before she pulls the trigger, there's a kid in the background who blocks his ears, because he knows the sound's coming. Once you see it, every time you watch the film, it draws you to look at him.

    Hitch must have been fuming when he first saw that.

  2. I've seen that. You're right it's a total distraction, but it's kind of fun catching goofs like that in movies.
